My wife has a Meade 114AZ. She has had it for years, but really has never used it. This telescope has gone through about 5 moves and I believe the mirror has shifted. Not the big bottom mirror, the small one that reflects into the eyepiece. (As you can tell, I am definitely a newbie at this). I have sat out on numerous nights trying to get it into focus, but no luck. Does anyone know of a simple way (or any way) to get this thing into focus? We don't have the instruction manual and with the Mars deal going on, we would love to see it. We have tried to find things in the past but just ended up getting frustrated (because of the focus). Any help would be greatly appreciated. We are in Germany right now and the option of taking it to someone to do it for us is not there. Thanks!!!
